Full List of DWP Payment Rates From April 2023 As Benefits Uprated By 10%

UPRATED BENEFITS -  Around 40 million individuals across the UK currently in receipt of a State Pension or benefits from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) will see their payments increase next year. State pensions and disability and working-age benefits will all be increased due to inflation.

In his Autumn Statement the Chancellor, Jeremy Hunt, confirmed that State Pension, disability and working age benefits will be uprated by 10.1% from April in line with the rate of inflation.

"On average, a family on universal credit will benefit next year by around £600. And to increase the number of households who can benefit from this decision, I will also exceptionally increase the benefit cap with inflation next year."
